Hi this is Desiree, I live in Glendale,CA and I have 10 years of experience.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because, truthfully back home in the Philippines I started nursing.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice for a new caregiver would be: have patience on dealing with elderly, treat them as one of your own, like mom, grandmother and be happy with them.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
My client that I would not forget is Betsy Loma because she treated me as one of her daughter and we laugh together, she has a sense of humor and being with her 24-7 makes your work easy, because there's no dull moment with her. We go to casino and she taught me how to play blackjack. That's what I don't forget on her and she was so good and great woman.
